How Much Land We Would Need to Supply the World with Solar Energy

According to a diploma thesis by Nadine May, we would need much less room to supply the entire world with solar energy than you would have thought. The issue, I guess, is that there is no business involved. Why are humans (I mean earthlings) so greedy?

    Umm, modern solar energy was invented by AT&Ts Bell Labs, and is now created by mostly private business. Thus, the stated fear of “greed” is totally baseless, and there are no conspiracies. Sorry, but reality matters.

      Thanks Mike, but then why are we still using oil and gas and coal for energy?

        Same as anything else. Price.
